High School Musical alum Zac Efron shared his excitement about co-stars Ashley Tisdale and Vanessa Hudgens being pregnant at the same time during the premiere of his romcom A Family Affair on June 13, 2024. According to Access Hollywood, the 36-year-old actor added that he was looking forward to family reunions with the kids.

"Oh they’re going to be the best moms ever, those girls, are you kidding me, oh my gosh. Yeah, we’re going to have some fun family reunions coming up," he said.

Ashley Tisdale is pregnant with her second child with husband Christopher French, while Vanessa Hudgens is expecting her first child with husband Cole Tucker.

On the other hand, Zac Efron does not have any children, however, he frequently posts pictures of his younger siblings, four-year-old Olivia and toddler Henry, on his Instagram page.

Zac Efron revealed his desire to become a father one day in a new interview

Zac Efron currently doesn't have any children but has expressed his desire to become a father one day. On March 2, 2024, in an interview with E!News, he mentioned his interest in having kids in the future.

"I think I’d love to have kids one day," Zac Efron said.

Two years ago, the actor expressed hesitation about having kids after playing a father in Keith Thomas's 2022 movie, Firestarter. In the horror/sci-fi flick, Zac Efron plays a father to an 11-year-old daughter named Charlie, played by Ryan Kiera Armstrong.

In a 2022 interview with host Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show, he admitted that he had more "growing to do" before considering becoming a parent. He explained that an emotionally charged scene with his on-screen daughter left him unsure about having kids of his own.

"All of a sudden I had this daughter in front of me. We had a pretty heavy dad-daughter scene right off the bat, and I realized I was drastically underprepared for this part. I didn’t know what I was doing. I thought it would just kind of click, but no, that’s not really the case!" Zac Efron said.

Zac Efron also praised his young co-star for making it easy for him, calling her "sweet" and the "coolest" and adding the two formed the "best bond."
